All volunteers get a special t-shirt which helps to distinguish them from the festival crowd. After the festival you can keep the t-shirt as a souvenir.

Volunteers will be offered a warm home meal on your volunteer days.

The volunteers' own resting place (Taukotupa) is the place where you can relax. There is a small coffee shop for volunteers, where you can drink coffee and buy sandwiches, sweets and snacks for a discounted price.

You can stay at volunteers's camping accommodation within the Ravileirintš camping site from Friday to Monday if you are arriving outside of Joensuu city.
